6 pm – 8 pm

The Old House Hotel
1730 Riverside Lane, Courtenay

You may have noticed an increase in our volunteer opportunities as of late. That is because we have lots of projects underway which aim to improve the health and productivity of Comox Valley ecosystems. These actions are especially important today, in the face of climate change, habitat loss and specifies extinction. With so much to do we really need your help!

To empower and entice you to get involved in our volunteer activities we have created this symposium. At the symposium we will share information, answer questions, perform hands on demonstrations, and provide signup forms for future activities.

Demonstrations:

  • Salt Water Wedge
  • Water Quality Monitoring
  • Salmon v Seals Game
  • Vortexing for Forage Fish Eggs

We are also going to take this opportunity to celebrate some special volunteers and give stuff away. Light snacks and refreshments will be available during the symposium.

Join us and be the change you want to see in the world! ~ Ghandi
